Real Quick – Let’s Explode Something!

Thursday night, my new lab coat arrived, all crisp and white, with pockets. Scott called to tell me I had a package at the house, so on the way home, I picked up this mess of things!

We watched the Mythbusters video explaining what is happening and why Mentos shoots like a rocket of foam out of a bottle of Diet Coke.

Then we ran outside to try it ourselves.

Somehow – no fun picture of me in my lab coat. Don’t worry. That will happen! Then we ran to get the house ready for granddaughters to arrive over the weekend. It really was just this super quick thing we did before dinner. But, it was Epic, in my kids eyes.

    I never knew this! How exciting for the boys (heck, it was for me as I drink Diet Pepsi by the gallon…). I love that you make science fun.
